NIck_Moran

Nick Moran

NYC artist Nick Moran “delivers a breath of fresh air to the music scene with a mix of old school blues/funk sounds mixed with his soulful/crisp vocals.” (review from www.unnomdeguerre.com) Inspired by legends like Sam Cooke, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles and James Brown, “Moran funnels those influences into his own brand of playful, upbeat blues and funk.” (review by Tom haugen) “When you listen to Nick Moran's “Who We Are” it’s hard to believe that it’s only his debut and that he’s not yet commanding the adoration of tens of thousands. Because he sings his jazzy pop songs with such surety and command that it effectively stamps out all the unsurety you might have when approaching a new artist.” 

“It reminds me in one sentence, of butterflies fluttering in Central Park on a summer afternoon”. (Review from www.athousandguitars.com)
